Ryan Sweeney has been activated from the 7 day concussion DL today, after missing 8 days. Outfielder Che-Hsuan Lin was optioned to Pawtucket to make room for Sweeney. Sweeney sustained a concussion after making a spectacular catch against the Phillies a week ago.
So far this season, Sweeney is hitting .311/.341/.443 this season. Before his injury, he was leading off for the Red Sox and the Sox will be glad to have him back, to say the least. His addition makes the Red Sox feel a lot better about the condition of the outfield, as now it is much stronger.
